Trail Photo

This 22 mile long offroad trail follows the Knik River and eventually leads toward a large glacier. A large flat parking spot is available which has plenty of room for large trailers.

The area has a wide variety of terrain that ranges from open meadows, gravel areas, narrow woods trails with deep water and mud crossings. All vehicle types are permitted but the area is especially popular with the ATV and 4x4 crowd during weekends.

The area is open year-round but can get very muddy during spring thaw.
